About this author

A favorite quote: “You can’t please all of the readers all of the time; you can’t please even some of the readers all of the time, but you really ought to try to please at least some of the readers some of the time.” ~Stephen King

J. S. Colley is a once-upon-a-time computer programmer. Now she spends her time writing, reading, and pondering all things related to science.

I picked up this book after finishing Gone Girl. Flipping through the first chapter, I thought, Oh no! Not another jackass character doing jackass-y things. I didn’t know if I had the stomach for it; but I had heard, on good word, that this was a wor ...more
